for the university of michigan that said it's appropriate to take race into account if you do it in a way that is personal and not a quota and you do a lot of other stuff so that actually no court can figure out what the heck you're doing. which is exactly the set of standard. if you make it so diffuse and so vague individualized that nobody has a smoking gun that race was actually the actual factor, then you can do it and people in the universities shockingly are able to do these things. and so i don't think that's the rule that the supreme court is going to be interested in coming back to that issue so soon. now, what makes this ut case so interesting is that in the interregulinte interregular e- -- inter-regnun, the texas legislature i think at the berest of a late republican whom i'm sure is very close to everybody here passed a statute that said in order to increase the number of minority students in texas public education, there was going to be a guaranteed 10% for the top 10 at each high school would be entitled to go into one of the universities in the ut system. and so the quest

'connor upheld an affirmative action program for the university of michigan as said it was appropriate to take race into account. if you do it any way that is personal that isa quota and do other stuff so no court can figure out what your doing. it is so if you may get -- so it is individualized, so nobody has a smoking gun that race was the actual fact, then you can do it. , then you can do it. universities, shockingly, are able to do these things. as long as that is the rule, the supreme court will be interested in coming back to that issue so soon. what makes it somewhat interesting is that, in the intake -- well, it was thrown out in the 1960's -- in texas, the late republican who was very close to everybody here, passed a statute that said that come in order to increase the minority students in texas public education, there would be a guaranteed 10% for the top 10 at each high school that would be eligible to go into the universities. the question is whether you can double dip, whether you can have a statute that will give you an arm for -- an umph on the 10% rule, but still have some def
